To Hell and Beyond
The Trip

On February 27, 1998, Jonathan Schaus and Rick Scholz went to Hell. Many people have asked us why we went to Hell.

The idea began during another trip that we took, this time to visit Rick's brother in Lake Arrowhead. We were looking at the stars, and Jon commented on how many more stars he could see when he lived in Liberia, West Africa. He commented that in Liberia, there are so many stars in the sky, that you can't even begin to count all of them.

We decided then and there to try to find some place far away from the city lights -- far enough so that we could experience stars like you could never see in the city.

After evaluating many options, we decided that Hell just has that special ring to it. So many times, people in a fit of rage would tell us to "Go to Hell." We decided to take them up on that offer.

Hell is located right off Interstate 10, just east of Desert Center, California. After we visited Hell, we continued into Arizona, staying in Gila Bend, Arizona. Saturday, we visited Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, and Sunday, we made the journey home.

Join us now, as we begin our journey to Hell and Beyond.
